Pitch 1: climb 120 feet of lower fifth class to the base of the dihedral.

Pitch 2: the sustained 5.7 crux is as you move out of the chimney, large #9 and #10 hexes are needed, 100 feet.

Pitch 3: climb 5.4 to the top. It is short.


This is on the largest rock in the valley. The start is right in the center.


Bring one each of large #9-10 hexes. You can rap off the back 60 feet or rappel the route.

I live in the Blue Mountain Estates as do a number of climbers actually, and if this is one of the crags in the valley, it is on private land for sure. I think the Bisque family owns most of the interesting looking crags, and they haven't been all that amenable to climbing as far as I know. Before heading up onto one of those formations, I'd make sure you know exactly whose land you accessing & get their explicit approval. JeffCo has all of the property ownership records on-line.

Why is this listed in the Ice & Mixed section? It appears to be a rock route.
